About Us

Life can be incredibly stressful and challenging. There might be moments when you feel as if the entire world is on your shoulders, and that weight can be suffocating. It might feel as if things are never going to get better; that life will always remain painful. And perhaps you’re depressed or anxious—maybe you’re unsure about the future of a relationship or feel that you aren’t living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, Psychological Preventative Health is here to offer support.

Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. It’s a step towards healing and enjoying life to the fullest. And the path of therapy isn’t always linear; everyone’s journey looks different, and that’s okay. In our sessions, we recognize everyone’s unique experience and promote behavioral transformation by teaching skills, encouraging a positive outlook, and adopting new attitudes and reactions.

Psychological Preventative Health has years of professional experience serving various Utah cities. We pride ourselves in helping clients regain what was lost and come out the other end stronger. Please know that seeking help isn’t a sign of weakness; if anything, it shows tremendous courage and strength. So, contact one of our clinicians today to take a step towards a new positive outlook!
